The round glass table (NOT the glass round table) A big, modern brick house (NOT a modern, big brick house) Long, flexible steel poles A tall, ancient oak-tree • 3. Adjectives which express judgments or attitudes usually come before all others. • Examples are lovely, definite, pure, absolute, extreme, perfect, wonderful, silly. • A lovely, long, cool drink • Who's that silly fat man over there?
  • 3. 4. Numbers usually go before adjectives. ---Six large eggs ---The second big shock ---First, next and last most often go before one, two, three etc. The first three days My last two jobs." • 5- Age, which would normally go after adjectives of size, length and height, but before colour, origin, material and purpose. • A big old straw hat. • A charming young university student.
